The immense muse of Egypt is played out beautifully and recorded accordingly for this show. Drop dead instrumentals, love that harpsichord effect on keys. And voices? Holey moley, even Jerry and Donna can be heard doin these growls, the best growls ever in my listening pleasure recollection.
Jerry's heartfelt performance of Peggy-O brought on for me a link to Peg O' My Heart; and by that I mean the raw yet gentle wistfulness of Peggy-O's story, not that the Dead actually played or mushed with that old-timey gem. The feelings of the music were expressed that clearly.
Gosh, the only thing ya could ask for would be the video. One can only imagine the imagery conjured by the gal who did the lights for the show,which I understand to have included gaining access to the special colored lights the facility shines on the pyramids for their own regularly scheduled light show at night in the desert.

Few take the time to explore the music of the Dead. They were, and are, cultural ambassadors for America's people. They played music from nearly every ethnic group that entered the United States. In that respect, they played "folk", and carried on the traditions of many peoples who were assimilated into this nation.
